OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - No Series Of Screensavers Under KDE 4.4.4
Sep 27, 2010
I recently updated to OpenSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 . I do not find the great series of screensavers which existed in previous versions. I look in sysemsettings, desktop, but there I find only two version of blank screen as screensaver and no way to install something else.
just installed openSuse on my desktop. Ever since I've been having problems with screensavers. When I open screensaver preferences, I can click on and see previews of all of the 2D screensavers, but the 3D screensavers just give me a black screen as a previews (even when I ask for a fullscreen preview). how-to fix this situation so that I can run 3D screensavers?
I'm running KDE, with 11.2 32-Bit. At first, my screen saver worked just fine, coming on after 130 min, being just long enough to watch a movie. Since changing the screen saver, but not the duration before activation my screen saver comes on every 20 min. I have tried changing and saving settings in YaST and going back to the original choice of screensaver, neither of which have worked.
I run a molecular biology lab and we like to run the "Molecule" GL screensaver in order to look cool (I know it doesn't actually save screens, and it wastes energy, but you know..). I'm about to install Opensuse 11.3 on all 24 of our laptops and I find that the number of GL screensavers installed as standard is greatly reduced from previous Opensuse releases. Any idea where I can get the "Molecule" and other screensavers?
I am running KDE and have the following relevant packages installed: kdeartwork4-screensaver xscreensaver xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-data-extra gnome-screensaver gnome-screensaver-extra This apparently gives me just 8 GL screensavers - there used to be a great many more?
I have a problem with the latest Fedora. Installed it cleanly on a machine with Gigabyte H55M-S2 with Intel Core i3. There seems to be no sound and I checked to see if anything is muted but is not. The manual says that the sound chip is ALC888B so this could be the first problem. Any ide how I can make it work? Here is a dump of some things on my system.
Code: [weaz ~]$ lspci | grep Audio 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 06) [weaz ~]$ uname -a Linux EarthwormJim 220.127.116.11-48.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Fri Oct 22 15:34:36 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I have on-board intel sound card (snd-hda-intel) andCreative Labs X-Fi (snd-ctxfi)in file "/etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf" I put options snd slots=snd-ctxfialias snd-card-0 snd-ctxfiand now sound works on X-fi,but question is how to update yast database (have error on install X-Fi tough) and list snd-0 to x-fi and snd-1 to hda-intel
I have a computer with an integrated graphics card. It is ati radeon xpress 200 series. It have installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my computer with KDE 4.1. I have heard that we have to manually install ati and nvidia drivers. Or can the open source drivers run my card. has the drivers for my card already been installed. Or should i install it manually. I donot have an internet connection on my pc. but i can download the required files from another computer and bring them to my pc.
Similar to the other threads, but a completely different card/manufacturer. The others were mostly Nvidia. I have a dial boot machine, HP PAvillion with Windows 7 and now openSUSE, 11.4.
One (of my many problems right now!) is the screen / monitor constantly blinks/flashes/blanks. About every 15-20 seconds, it will go black for about 1-2 seconds and then come right back.
I was using KDE the first go around, and have since re-installed and am now running Gnome. I switched to Mint in between and did not have this problem. Also, I do not appear to have this happen at the logon screen. I have also tried ubuntu and didn't have the problem. I have checked the screen saver settings, and power save options and have them set to off and a couple of hours respectively. I have also modified the xorg.conf.d file to hard code the monitor settings. (Dell 23"). The card is Dual DVI out, and I have it converting to VGA to the monitor.
I am trying to join about 3 video file and have an audio track over the top. Nothing major and to give you an idea how basic it needs to be, I used windows movie maker in the past. I can't figure out how to do it! I had a flick through the web and some people recommended Avidmux. I installed it and i can edit one video file with no audio but if i try to incorporate a second file it just opens a new window! Has anyone got any ideas on good video editing software.
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-2230sa During boot I get a series of errors about ACPI and AHCI Conflicts, the result of which I have to dissable ACPI with acpi=off. However when acpi=off my wireless Broadcom b43 series refuses to enable the wifi. I just can't press the button that would enable / dissable the wifi.
The wifi is detected, the drivers and firmware are installed, however the light remains firmly in the RED.the ethernet works, sound works fine, There also seems to be an issue with the ATi/Radeon Driver being missing which is causing fatal errors at boot time and also some memory conflicts again causing fatal errors.
I have tried this laptop under opensuse 11.2 and now under opensuse 11.3M5 without sucsess - however to my dislike Ubuntu have managed to resolve this by accident between 9.4 and 9.10 but i wanna use opensuse not ubuntu i have asked them to tell me how they fixed it to share it with you but I am still plowing my way through their forum!
I'm very new to Linux and have recently installed Debian Squeeze on my pc. I'm trying to install the Nvidia package as the system has a XFX 9 series card installed. I'm unable to get stop X to complete package installation. I keep getting permission denied when I run the command /etc/init.d/gdm stop. After reviewing a few forums I also log in as root to the console and tried the command there as well. I'm still getting the permission denied response. Can anyone advise on how to get around this?
I'm trying to install the driver for my ATI Radeon X1600 Series video card. I got the driver from the ATI site. Heres the link: [URL]... I'm using 10.04 LTS. I have attached a screenshot of the message I get when I run the installer.
I was successful in getting the ATI catalyst software to set the displays to maximum resolution. The second display is dark. It shows a white "X" cursor if I move the mouse to the second screen. The KDE desktop configuration manager does not recognize the second monitor.
I just noticed that my screensaver was not working in Fedora 14 x86_64 / Gnome. I searched in Yumex on "screensaver" and reinstalled all that were marked as installed, but no joy. Not only does the screensaver not come on (it is set to 30 minutes) but if I go into Preferences > Screensaver and click on one of the choices it does not display the selected screensaver in the preview window. That is, none of them display except Floating Feet and Floating Fedora Bubbles. What is going on is to discover where those two screensavers come from as opposed to the others. i.e., what packages are they from?
I was wondering if there is an application that allows the computer to chose a screensaver at random from a specific list that you make. I know that you can make the computer choose any screensaver at random, but I want it to choose only the ones I specify at random. I have about 6 screensavers that I want it to choose at random.
don't use gnome/KDE or XFCE, I use Ratpoison. Because of this, the normal state of my computer is to show my wallpaper which rotates often enough that I don't need or want a screensaver.How do I stop the screen from going black every ten minutes? This is also bad when I watch a movie.
I copied some xscreensavers into the screensavers folder which is in usr/applications/screensavers. Now when I go to my screensaver application, they don't show up at all. What should I do? I am running Ubuntu 10.10.
I just install rss-glx, - the really slick screensavers package, but there are no new screensavers being listed in the GNOME preferences panel in F13. How do I get these nice screensavers into the screensaver preferences?
I've recently installed the package xscreensaver-gl-extra, and noticed not one of the screensavers on that package works - all I get is a blank screen on all of them. However, I remember those screensavers working under Jaunty on exactly the same hardware (didn't test them on Karmic).How can I make them work again?
When using the very nice opengl screensavers, rss-glx, etc. the screensavers are very choppy.I tried modifying my xorg.conf but still no go.Anyway to get the rss-glx screensavers to run at normal speed?I read online that Intel disable the hardware acceleration.This is a work laptop but I just wanted to see if I could get it going.
I have a Dell D620 and I can't use any screensavers. Rather, no screensavers work. Just for giggles, I booted a Kubuntu 11.04 CD, updated the sources.list, installed rss-glx and was able to use the rss-glx and other opengl screensavers. The reason I say opengl is because those are the ones that I use but no screensavers work.
opensuse 11.2 ,my monitor keeps going to sleep or somthing and this is a problem when im watching videos,ive set screens power setting but they dont seem to be whats doing it.im running a nvidia gtx260 and have installed nvidia drivers for series 6 and up.dont know if its the divers or somthing else.
How to find out the series (i series or z series)in redhat enterprise linux If I give uname -a it gives Linux hostname 2.6.9-55.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Apr 20 17:03:35 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Does this mean that my server is in i series as it says i386..?
